. fast ford today, governor romney is beating president obama by 7 points marking a 26-point slide for the commander-in-chief. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news.com. is that correct, chris? the early voting tends to favor the democrats. it seems like republicans don't like early voting, they complain about it because it favors the other side but not so according to this poll in this election. >> that is exactly right, megyn. the truth is democrats have long pushed to extend voting as long as possible. no election day, they want election month. they want more times to get their voters to the polls. there are more democrats than republicans. republicans vote with higher intensity usually than democrats. when we see a pupl lik number like pew's that the republican candidate has gone ahead when you're talking about a challenger that is remarkable indeed especially in a race that is shaping up as a dead heat. megyn: how does that relate to what is happening in the swing states. that's a national number on the pew poll. the nationa
you. >>> coming up, republican governor chris christie is very glad that barack obama is president, this week anyway. >>> and later, mitt romney had a campaign event that he refused to admit was a campaign event. karen finney and jonathan capehart will join me on that. and mitt romney thinks things will magically change for the better, and he got one newspaper to believe him. that's how he got their editorial endorsement, and that's in the "rewrite." congre. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties! with cake! and presents! ah, that was good. too bad nobody could hear me. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. >>> new jersey governor chris christie gave the keynote address at the republican national convention. today he spoke in favor of something very few republicans support, feder

on this. >> absolutely. tomorrow president obama and governor chris christie of new jersey are expected to be in newark. obviously, that report from dawn zimmer is distressing. the idea that tl might be 25,000 people who haven't been rescued because they are physically not accessible. that the vehicles have not made it there to get them out. but we're going to have leadership going to the state tomorrow. hopefully that results in faster action in the city of hoboken. the storm which has made things so tough in the east has provided a window into the leadership styles in the men competing to be president of the united states. news on that is coming up. we've all had those moments. when you lost the thing you can't believe you lost. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a little trouble a long way from home... as an american express cardmember you can expect some help. but what you might not expect, is you can get all this with a prepaid card. spends like cash. feels like membership. the capability of a pathfinder with the comfort of a sedan and create a next-gen s.u.v.

is a different story just a month ago president obama led governor romney by double digits. today that margin is razor thin. it really is still right down the lines of is the economy the important tipping point for you one way or the other or is it really the social issue that is are the tipping point one way or the other? >> reporter: for you it was? >> for me it was a little bit of both. >> reporter: registered independent laura is voting for obama. her running mates voted early. how did you vote if you voted already? >> i voted for romney. >> i feel like it's a lot of things in our economy that need to be worked on and i feel like obama has had a lot of great talk but not as much that's been done. >> reporter: with just days left, there are fewer and fewer people. you feel like they're fighting over you? >> little bit more, yeah, yeah i do. >> reporter: the state's nine electoral votes could hang in the balance and so could the election. cnn, lakewood, colorado. >> really pretty out there. election days away. candidates back on the trail. we asked, is it too soon to be campaigning after hu
. president obama resumed campaigning today, a day after governor romney went back on the trail. they both planned to hold virtually nonstop events between now and tuesday. the race still considered too close to call of cnn's latest poll shows president obama ahead by one point. 48-47%. a national poll. the poll in the state of colorado, the new international poll shows 15% of likely polls backing obama. that's within the sampling number. 49-45, also within the margin of error. now today, governor romney's camp said he will campaign in pennsylvania on sunday. they claimed the deep blue key stone state is in play. they said the same thing in a memo but didn't cite any particular data. the obama campaign called it a sign of desperation on their part. joining me now with the raw politics, chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, and jim acosta and correspondent john king. >> the storm has been a real curveball for candidates. how has mitt romney been handling transitioning back to regular campaign mode? does he feel that it may have stopped his momentum? >> what we saw earlier from mi
? do they credit john kasich, the republican governor, or do they credit barak obama, the democratic president? >> well, in the polls that i have seen, most recent polls by a big margin, they give the governor credit. and i think that's absolutely correct. he came in, very tough situation. he's dealt with the taxes, taking down regulations, created a better business climate in the state. i think people understand that. what we feel in ohio is people are just not particularly happy with president obama. i think this race really got reset in ohio after the first debate. the obama campaign had been painting this picture of governor romney as some individual and people looked at the stage and they said, look what governor romney was saying and they said, he could be president. he could be a leader. >> steve: sure. >> and i think it's made a big, big difference. >> steve: and governor, i know that you're happy that the unemployment rate is lower in the great state of ohio, and that is the number one reason people are going to be casting a ballot is the economy. but you give barak obama th

alongside. when we heard or i heard governor romney say we're roaring back, i instantly thought of the auto bailout, the auto industry. how many times we heard on the campaign trail from obama and others saying gm is roaring back. and i thought, wow, it all goes back to ohio and that auto bailout which was unpopular at the time, and now here we are. >> right. so one of the big questions is will mitt romney kind of blur the lines on the auto bailout sufficiently to gain a little ground in ohio? because that is a huge issue in that state. and arguably, we could be saying wednesday that that issue won the state for president obama and that it won reelection for president obama. >> do you think we're talking too much about ohio? listen, you've got the romney campaign saying they're looking at pennsylvania, minnesota, that they perhaps have some traction there. and we know the new numbers in florida. we'll talk with marc about that throe show at least a difference in polls from the nbc marist poll and local polls show romney is up more than we're indicating. >> first of all, i think both sides g
